Joe Brenner: Unicode and Everything


Published March 3, 2014


Unicode & Everything (Perl, Javascript, Ruby, Python, DBs, web browsers...)

The internet is binary, but it's far from ASCII. To embrace the full potential of your software, you must embrace the world. You must embrace Unicode. Unfortunately, Unicode is seen as prickly and unembraceable. Nothing could be further from the truth!

SF.pm's own Joe Brenner gives us a tour of the Tower of Babel. While some of the examples will be in Perl, the concepts are–truly–universal. Come learn about:

  • Unicode and it's various encodings (UTF-8, UCS-2, UTF-16...)

  • The implications for different programming languages

  • The Gotchas

  • Best practices and workarounds

  • Anything else we can squeeze in

Uploader Note: There were a lot of technical difficulties with streaming/recording this event:
  • The network cut out at the venue, causing the streaming provider to lose the first half of the recorded talk

  • The microphone died, so the audio is...problematic

  • The lighting in the venue plus the white background of the slides == unreadable slides


But, for the sake of posterity, what little we have of the video is here, no matter its condition.
Please also see the slides, available below.
